A faulty Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is an automatic MOT failure on cars registered after 1 January 2012.
Many of the cars that we deal with at R M Tyres have the system in place and at the point of fitting any new tyres, we as a company will, as part of our service to you, check that the TPMS valve is in working order.
We are able to do this with the aid of an I-sensor hand held diagnostic machine which reads not only the tyre pressures but also whether the valve sensor’s battery is healthy and ultimately whether the valve itself is faulty.
The field of diagnosing and replacing faulty TMS valves was, until relatively recently, the domain of the Main Dealerships but that has now changed thanks to the availability of high tech diagnostic equipment such as the I-Sensor.
If Tyres are incorrectly inflated uneven wearing of the tyres can be caused which will simply mean you will need to replace your tyres more frequently with a TPMS you are able to ensure correct pressure at all times.
Another money saving aspect linked to TPMS is that of fuel efficiency. It has been known for some time now that under inflated tyres result in more fuel being used by a vehicle thus costing the driver more money. By have a TPMS, fuel efficiency can be maintained thus cutting fuel costs.
Running a fuel efficient vehicle can cut down the carbon dioxide emissions from that vehicle and therefore be of benefit to the environment or at least not as detrimental as driving around in a vehicle that isn’t fuel efficient.
Finally for all you statistic lovers – here are a few figures to support the benefits of having a TPMS.
A new tyre leaks between 3psi – 8psi in a year this results in an increase in fuel consumption of around 2% and a 25% reduction in the life of the tyre.
EU investigations (2012) show that under inflated tyres are globally resulting in:
– 20 million litres of fuel being used unnecessarily
– 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions
– 200 million prematurely worn tyres
– 9% of accidents involving fatalities
– 41% of accidents involving injury
So regardless of whether your vehicle is fitted with a TPMS or not, there is no doubt that by ensuring your tyres are correctly inflated you will be driving a safer vehicle for both yourself and the environment whilst saving a bit of money in the process.
